Digi-Guys, the developer behind the elusive PS3 exclusive action title, WarDevil
, is suing an ex-employee for claims that the game is vapourware.
According to a post from an admin on PS3Forums.com
, where the allegedly slanderous allegations were made - "Digi-Guys have stated that they have initiated legal proceedings against their ex-employee, who has been posting on this forum under the username of 'LeeArcher'.
"Whilst this matter is being handled via legal channels Digi-Guys cannot directly address, discuss or engage in any matters relating to this subject. Digi-Guys have stated that they understand that this will be frustrating to the real fans of Wardevil
out there but at this time are unable to comment further."
LeeArcher, whose original posts have been removed from the Forum, wrote, "they are no where near completing this game based on the information I have. they have been working on the same 3 levels, one of which was recycled from a previous 'attempt' at the project before ingntion/utv merger for the last 3 years. It?s supposed to be a game with 20 hours worth of play, and a 2 hour feature film? get real. the levels are so small you could walk though them in 5 minutes and be like 'what? that?s it? **** that'".
Although Digi-guys claimed Archer was an ex-employee, at the time of posting he claimed to be an investor in the company.
The game itself has been in the realm of public knowledge since 2004, but very little has been seen of it. It was originally set to be on the PS3 and 360, but is now just being worked on for Sony's console. Digi-Guys' shutdown over LeeArcher's comments, the lack of details about WarDevil
and its extensive development period have lead some to believe that Archer's assertions are true.Sources:
